15 December 2017, 10.00 – 17.00

One-day workshop with Bertram Gawronski (Austin)

“Attitudes and the explicit-implicit dualism”; includes preparatory meeting 10 Nov, 16.15-17.00

Credit Points: 1

Content

The construct of attitude is defined as "a psychological tendency that is expressed by evaluating a particular entity with some degree of favor or disfavor". The implicit association test (IAT), infamous for many studies on implicit racial bias, and other implicit and explicit measures, provides conflicting evidence for how attitudes form and change. Different dual-system and dual-process theories have been proposed to explain the mixed evidence. The one-day-workshop provides a critical overview of the theories and measurement techniques of implicit and explicit evaluation, an introduction into Prof. Gawronski’s own context-sensitive dual-process theory, and a discussion of myths and media coverage of implicit measures.

Course requirements

Depending on the number of participants, participants are required to give a 10 to 15 min long presentation (alone or in pairs) on one of the 4 to 5 topics. Presentations will be assigned during the 1h preparatory meeting a month in advance. A pdf-reader will be distributed to registered participants via moodle. The reader will contain obligatory and mandatory readings. All participants are expected to be acquainted with the readings accordingly.

After the workshop, participants are invited to take part in Prof. Gawronski’s public lecture on “What Do Implicit Measures Tell Us? Evidence, Myths, and the Media” which is followed by a social event for the workshop participants.
